Our coastal communities are densely populated, with over 50 percent of the nation’s population on 20 percent of its’ landmass. From 1970 to 2010, coastal populations increased by 39 percent and this trend has continued. Producing more than $9 trillion in goods and services, our coastal communities represent a vital component of the national economy. Faced with the challenges posed by sea level rise, more frequent and intense storms, and population growth, a comprehensive approach to coastal planning and adaptation is imperative for the long-term survival of our coastal communities.
